And what would be the miracle in our times, when each person decides to change his or her own life and do an extra good deed, or a commandment from G-d, showing that the world is a G-dly place and is ready for the coming of Moshiach!

so whats the miracle of chanukah all about? the jews saw that the greek culture was overtaking the jewish people, so a few brave men who were led by an old brave and wise leader took on the fight with the world's superpower! and what happened? G-d showed the world that when you act like he wants you to act even when it goes above human reason then G-d responds in turn. and the jews won and got the temple back and the land and lit the chanukah menorah, and that's when the main miracle occurred, oil that was according to the laws of nature as described by physics and chemistry was only supposed to be lit for one day maybe a day and a few hours actually burned for a full eight days! showing the world that G-d made the laws of nature and He himself is not at all bound by them.

In the last law of the Mishne Torah the Rambam writes that in the time of Moshiach the world will be filled with the knowledge of G-d as the waters cover the sea beds. The analogy is teaching us that the sea, which is full of all kinds of creatures and hidden things, is completely immersed and unnoticeable under the waters. The same way soon when Moshiach comes, the whole world and everything in it will exist, but it will be unnoticeable compared to the knowledge of G-d which we will all posses.
After this we go back to the beginning of the Mishne Torah and read the first halachah which stated: the the beginning of all beginnings and the cause of all causes is G-d, so our knowledge is heightened and we realize that there is nothing besides G-d.
